Description: Resistors are a good thing, in fact, they’re actually crucial in a lot of circuit designs. The only problem seems to be that resistors disappear into thin air. The only way to be sure that you’re gonna have the resistor you need when you need it is to stock up, and keep them organized. We have just the thing!

Our new branded resistor kit comes with 25 each of 20 different resistor values (including 0Ω links!). All of these resistors are stapled into a tri-fold pack and clearly labeled. The back of the resistor kit even has a resistor color code look-up chart and a table of color codes for the included resistors!

We’d like to give Oomlout credit for coming up with this great idea. Thanks guys!

Values Included:

  • 0Ω, 1.5Ω, 4.7Ω, 10Ω, 47Ω
  • 100Ω, 220Ω, 330Ω, 470Ω, 680Ω
  • 1kΩ, 2.2kΩ, 3.3kΩ, 4.7kΩ, 10kΩ
  • 22kΩ, 47kΩ, 100kΩ, 330kΩ, 1MΩ

Customer Comments

  • I want this, but with capacitors. Please?

    • Double ditto! I just bought the assorted ceramic capacitor bag from RipoffShack, and out of the 100 in the bag, there was not a single one I could use in my project. Plenty of 10pF caps, though.

    • Ditto on the caps!

    • Yes, can we please please please get a capacitor kit?

    • yes, though ceramic or film caps that would be used in exact values in filters, not electrolytics

  • This is long overdue, but very nicely executed. Kudos.

  • “25 each”? Should be a lot more 10 kΩ and 100 kΩ than other values, since you use those a lot more.

  • How stiff are the wires on the resistors? I have bought an assortment in the past that had thin wires that were hard to insert into a breadboard without them bending up.

    • In my experience, ¼ watt resistors tend to have leads similar to 22 AWG wire.

      • I have some ¼ watt with a wire thickness of 0.021" and others with a wire thickness of 0.017. One size goes into a breadboard nicely the others don’t

        • Hi,

          I bought this kit a while back. To answer your question, they are not extremely stiff. For direct PCB/proto board soldering, it is good. For breadboard, I find them too maleable for the task. However, my breadboard is really stiff.

  • It would be awesome to get one of these full of ceramic caps!

  • Quite a nice kit, but I believe the 110R resistor is actually 100 ohms… its actually printed as 110 on the front cover but 100 inside the cover.

  • mentioned the 0 Ohm resistors to my brother in law (masters in EE) says they use them in circuit design on PCBs just in case your calculations are wrong and a specific area might need more resistance. Still I think whats wrong with a wire instead but hey I don’t have a masters in Electrical Engineering.

    • “A zero-ohm link or zero-ohm resistor is a wire link used to connect traces on a printed circuit board that is packaged in the same format as a resistor. This format allows it to be placed on the circuit board using same automated equipment used to place other resistors instead of requiring a separate machine to install a jumper or other wire. Zero-ohm resistors may be packaged like cylindrical resistors, or like surface-mount resistors.”

      from wikipedia… used so that they dont need a different machine for jumpers.

      • Yeah I’ve been thinking about this for a while and having 0 Ohm resistors at your disposal would make PCB design easier. Especially for the layperson whom can probably only manage a 2 sided PCB.

    • it’s identical to a wire, but with the same body as a resistor so it can be grabbed by a machine. there’s no reason to include them in this kit meant for hobbyists. just use a wire.

  • I want a capacitor kit!

  • 0 ohm resistors? I’ve got spools of those and they’ve even got insulation on the outside.

  • When will they be back in stock?

  • Can someone tell me what is the voltage rating (not power) for these resistors? Thanks!

  • Any Chance that you will come out with a ½ Watt resistor kit? For those of us who use bulkier resistors due to… being prone to lighting things on fire…. :/

  • I would pay for a bigger kit if it comes in a great storage unit clearly labeled like your inventors kit.

  • Radio Shack part number 271-312 is a resistor kit with more values. There are more of the more-popular values. It’s pretty rare for Radio Shack to do better than SparkFun, but this is one such case.

  • Great idea but not that useful due to limited selection of values. I’d prefer, say, 10 pcs of 2.5X more values. Or just a bigger kit.

    Also, you need to specify the tolerance.

  • I would rather see a kit with 10 each with 40 different values and or 5 each 80 - 1% would be nice too. AND a good Capasitor kit..like already mentioned.. Thanks, Terry

  • Why 4.7, 47,470, 4.7k and 47k? Why not 5, 50, 500, 5k and 50k? What I need is 60k for a sensor. So that means I have to use a 47k, 1k, 1k, 1k, and a 10k to get there. So it can be done, it just looks unpleasant. Or if I was smarter I could put resistors in parallel. Other site have the multiples of 47 resistors as well. I was wondering what they are used for. Maybe they went in line with a variable resistor for adjustment?

    • Good question. 47 is a standard resistor value. Why is it standard? This site has a good explanation.

      Why not sell a kit with the E24 series instead of the E6? My guess is cost.

      Kits get you in the ballpark while experimenting but if you need something precise, it is better to order the part specifically. Also, ask yourself how precise does it need to be for what you’re doing. With these resistors the value could be off ±5%. In your example, you may not even need a couple of the 1Ks. Or you may need more.

  • Could you tell me where this is made from?

  • OMG these little resistors are carbon, and the values are horrible, I can’t believe my friend wants this as a gift. I’m going to have to show him what good components are; some men have to just keep being taught how to use their equiptment

  • This is a fantastic idea, well executed. So much better than my old system of keep these organized. Thank you Spark Fun!

  • What’s the tolerance on these resistors in this pack?

  • SMD version please!

  • Thanks did not see that.

  • When will it be back in stock.

    • For products that are out of stock, SFE tries to give an estimate for new stock on the right hand side of the product page. Currently (2014/01/24) it reads: “We have a purchase for 2000 units. We expect some of these to arrive next on Feb 2, 2014.” I do stress that this is an estimate, however, as logistical issues can always rear their head.

  • What is the pin spacing on these? 100mil, 200mil,300mil,400mil? this is for designing PCBs and need the correct pin spacing for these….Thanks.

  • An irresistible addition to anyone starting out in electronics.

    Color codes in ACTUAL color is a nice touch! I will eventually cut that out and save it when I move my small components and datasheets to a binder (baseball card storer + small baggies).

    I tried putting these resistors in my stiffest breadboard and had with no problem at all! My loosest breadboard holds them pretty good as well.

  • Can we have a PDF of the chart on the back? The sticker is great, but the color version is much more effective.

  • can we get the old unbranded kit back? this kit is way short on values! Also do we really need to pay for 0Ω resistors as part of the kit? I’d call that wire! (unless by some stretch of physics you have found a way for these to really be 0Ω±5% then maybe you could auction them along with your nobel prize!)

  • Is there an SMD version?

  • If only it had some median resistor sizes… Never know when you will need a 12 ohm resistor… Awesome set of resistors for LED noobs to play with…

    • Keep in mind these are 5% tolerance, so if 2 ohms makes a difference in your circuit you should probably be looking for the blue guys…

    • A 1.5 and a 10 in series get you pretty close…

  • Is there any diference between 1/4W and 1/6th Watt PTH at Resistor 330 Ohm 1/6th Watt PTH.

  • I love it!

  • any idea when this is coming back in stock?

    • I have an order with this backordered and was told they’ll have it in stock in the “[n]ext couple of weeks”.

  • Might wanna add “carbon film” and their tolerance to the description, so we don’t have to squint at the picture. ;)

  • Been waiting for something like this! Picked one up.

  • Are these all 5%?

    • Apart from the 0 Ohm resistors, yes. If you look closely at the packaging, you can see the +- 5%. The 0 Ohm resistors are of course +- Infinite % :-)

  • Zero ohm resistors? really? Okay, I can see a use, but I’d really just use a piece of wire, rather than pay for a resistor.

    • Wire looks shoddy. When I open something up from china and see wire jumpers, I am immediately disappointed. But 0Ω resistors look good!

      • I just busted open my old alarm clock and there was wire jumpers all over the place. I have to admit, I was rather disappointed. However I did salvage all kinds of neat parts. I am definitely picking up one of these sweet kits.

        • This kit is on its way to my house along with an Arduino Uno R3 and various other sweet parts. Can’t wait for it to arrive.

  • great stocking stuffer.

    Papa Smurf does bring up a good point. Why 0 ohm? Why not use a piece of wire?

    • Although not really relevant here, they are useful in pick and place, where a wire bridge won’t work properly.

  • Wow really, a Zero ohm resistor?!?! Sometimes I wonder about U guy’s (sniffin too much leaded soldor)

    • I am going to build the world’s highest-precision R2R ladder out of several reels of those 0Ω resistors, once I can find some that are exactly twice their value.

    • They actually are pretty common. They are used in pick and place machines as jumpers- I think wire bridges are harder/require more specialized equipment… :)

    • Actually lead-free solder is much worse for you.

    • The only point I can see in these things is that those who are embarrassed about using jumpers can now make connections without tarnishing their project.

      0 Ohm. Really??

      • It’s linked in the product description; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-ohm_link

        “This format allows it to be placed on the circuit board using same automated equipment used to place other resistors instead of requiring a separate machine to install a jumper or other wire.”

      • 0 Ohm resistors are very commonly used in professional engineering design. They typically have two purposes - 1) you can change the resistor value later if desired. Or, 2) you can use the location as a machine-populated jumper. Then you can save money manufacturing PCBs by designing a board that does several different things, but some features are only enabled if the assembly specifies including that ‘resistor’.

      • We manufacture thousands and thousands of PCB’s where I work, for alot of large international customers and we use 0 ohm resistors and almost every board that we use. They are very common components actually.

Resistor Kit

Very useful and convenient. Liked it. Reminds me that I could use some capacitor assortments as well. Bill

One of the best resistor kits out there

I love the way this kit is packaged, its very easy and efficient to find the resistor you need and just snip it out of the tape. Has all of the common resistor sizes and its fairly cheap compared to a lot of kits.

I have been looking for something like this for 10 years

Try getting one form one of the resistor manufactures and you will pay through the nose. Over $100 for a plastic drawer set with the same resistors in this kit. and you have to put them in after you get it.

Love it! I bought two!

Different version of preferred value resistors

Unexpected new values for the breadboard, and hole-through use. These have nice long leads. A version I used to buy was:

30ea. 1K,10K,100K

Nice assortment, but thin leads

This is an okay set of resistors for a beginner kit. I think it’s fine that the leads are taped in rows and the rows are basically stapled to the top of the outer cardboard you see in the picture.

The leads are very thin. For a beginner looking to press these into a breadboard, the leads are simply too thin to work with. I don’t have a micrometer to check the lead thickness, but I’m guessing these are thinner than even the normal 0.45mm diameter types meant for lower temperature applications.

I would look for a similar kit with the normal 0.6mm leads for use with a breadboard.

BUY THIS YOU WANT IT

I keep this next to my soldering iron. I always have the really common resistor values handy now, and don’t have to hunt for them in my supplies stock. This is absolutely definitely assuredly worth the price.

I want one just like this but for ceramic and poly capacitors. Maybe one for molded inductors too.

The only demerit is that these resistors have very thin leads. Too thin to engage most header sockets, and they are hit-and-miss with breadboards also.


1 of 1 found this helpful:

Very useful!

I can never find the exact resistor I need in my messy pile of unlabeled components, and the tiny colored stripes are devilishly difficult to see anyway. So this little booklet of nicely labeled resistors is perfect for my projects!

There are better products out there.

Although this suffices for a beginner, it quickly becomes a handicap as you learn. There are many kits out there that far surpass this one. This is for a variety of reasons. First of all, out of the 73 standard E12 values up to 1Mohm, only 25 are present. This kit is missing two thirds of the standard values. Second of all, the packaging is extremely lacking. This “kit” consists of little more than resistor sheets loosely stapled to a sheet of thin cardboard. The resistors freely flap around, and it is difficult to access individual resistors. Finally, the leads of the resistors are far, far, far too thin. Even with a breadboard that has fully been broken in, it is difficult to insert these things without bending the leads.


Resistor Kit

Very convenient to get a reasonable qty & value range for proto board efforts.


Great idea

Perfect to have everything in one place. Just what I was looking for!


Wish there were cap kits like this too!

I ordered three: One for my portable kit, one for my high school-aged son and one for his FIRST robotics team. No more wondering “if we have one” and no more “quick runs to Rat Shack.” You nailed it with this kit, guys. Thanks!


Great buy!

Nice packaging and informative! Great for anyone new to electronics and includes a good selection of the most commonly used resistances.


Just what I needed

Great packaging, convenient access to

Nice package!

This is great. Each ‘value’ of resistor is on a separate sheet and they are stapled in order of increasing Ohm value. I labeled the tape on mine so they were easier to find since the little colors are hard for me to read.

Sparkfun ought to create a web tool that can accept a target resistance and then based on the resistor values in this pack, can show you an equivalent resistor network you’d have to build from 2 or 3 different resistors to get as close as possible. Kind of like this page, but restricted to the resistors in this pack.

Good Assortment of Resistors

I wanted a decent assortment of resistors to have on hand and this does the job. The tri-fold pack is decent and you could easily leave the resistors in it for storage if you wanted. Not much else to say, they’re resistors. I will probably buy a couple more of these packs to have on hand.


I couldn't resist.

A well organized set of assorted resisters. What else is there to say?


Skinny Leads

This is the first time i bought electronics components and i guess i have plenty more to learn. I’m working strictly on a breadboard right now and the wires on these resistors are very narrow gauge. I’ve been able to fold the leads over, doubling up the width, and this seems to make them seat properly on the board. Other than the width having a nice assortment of ohm values in the book-like form factor is nice.


Great kit

Very handy especially working with kids. The labels are very easy to follow and finding the right resistor is quick!


Great kit

Nice selection. The packaging makes it very easy to find what you need.


So cheap but so usefull

So good for beginner at analog electronics. Was building OP Amp circuits with this.


Just what it says on the tin

Not much to say - it’s a whole bunch of four-band resistors, for all your resisting needs. The packaging is certainly better than bags of parts, or even worse ONE bag with all the parts, but I’ll probably still rehome all the resistors into a plastic divider box.


Best thing I ever owned

Great for breadboard development

I was able to use these parts for my breadboard kits. Its easy to try new resistors to get things right.


Good product

The resistors work fine. The packaging is conveniently labeled with the resistor ratings on the inside and a color code chart on the outside. It does includes a bunch of zero ohm resistors that are basically useless if you’re not running a pick and place machine. Might have been better to include a few extra 1Ks instead…


Resistance is … wait. A dozen other people have made this joke already. haven't they?

Does what it says on the tin. Was just a little too long to stick inside my parts drawer. but judicious application of scissors to the cardboard fixed that.


Quality Kit of resistors

This kit is exactly as described; LOTS of resistors. I like how it folds out, and It really is nice to know that I have so may resistors to choose from. I have this nagging feeling though that I’m going to run out of a specific resistor one day and be shocked.


lab resistors

Filled my needs for having suitable resistors at hand in my lab. Very good assortment and easy to work with.


Resistor kit

It is a excellent value for the money. Good variety and compacted organized. I recommend it.


Great kit for starters

Awesome pack of useful resistors for beginners, or just to have on-hand. Doesn’t have “all” the values you’d ever need, but… It does have 500 resistors.


Great for backup and off line storage

Use these to keep handy on my workbench. Easier than searching thru my parts bins.


Resistor kit

A real time saver. It’s the perfect kit to have in my parts larder. When I need a resistor for what ever I happen to be working on. I just reach for my stock of resistors, pluck out the one(s) I need and keep working.


Convenient, but..

After having this around my desk for about two years now, my number one gripe with this product is the thickness of the leads. They’re really thin and have a tendency to fall out of my breadboards - which is a real pain. My parts bin has a lot of random ¼ w resistors that I bought years ago that have nice thick leads on them, and so I always try to use one of those unless I have no other choice.

Other than that, this kit has helped me a few times when I need a resistor in a hurry and voila there it is. Well, almost always… I’m not sure who picked the values, but IMHO these aren’t entirely the best choices considering how few values are included. Mine still has lots of resistors that are untouched and probably will never be used, like the 0-ohm links - these are just a waste of space - I can think of lots of better choices.


Do not resist!

I must say the oddest part was the 0 OHM resistors. I have since found several uses ranging from allowing a testing port to op-amp decoupling point. But my favorite is using them to pin things to my cork board. Have a wide range. and a large number of each. A must have for any proto-kit.


good product

Offer more single resistance resistor, such as 330 ohm or 220 ohm, etc.

Hi, We do have specific packs of values such as this 330 ohm pack – https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11507


Not bad for the price

Overall, good set of resistors. My only frustration is that the ends are very thin and difficult to get into a breadboard with the ends crumpling.


Really handy

Easy to find the resistor i want quickly. The zero ohms is useful when breadboarding and avoids a jumper.


Good set of resistors

I debated between this pack and a box of resistors in their own plastic bags for each value. Decided this was a good value and wanted to support a local business. No issues with any of the resistors so far.


great kit

I use this kit at my work the variety of resistance values comes in handy. I will be buying more when I need them.


A Mandatory Part of Anyone's Electrical Toolbox

The description for this product is pretty spot on. Many circuits will need resistors and this kit has such a variety, you likely won’t need to worry about whether or not you have the right resistor. The little book they come in is a nice organizer, easy to carry with all resistors neatly sorted and attached on tape rolls. It fit perfectly in my toolbox and I have been the resistor guru among my peers. If you build circuits, or plan to begin building circuits, this product will be as helpful as any breadboard, soldering iron or multimeter. Highly recommended.


Comes very neatly organized and orderly

I’ve ordered large groups of resistors in the past, and they all show up out of order and you have to go through and interpret some chicken scratch they wrote as to what the value was and then hope they sent you all they promised and didn’t forget pr duplicate any. This one comes nice, neat, and organized. Very much worth it.


Just what I needed

I needed a variety of resistors, as I am just beginning to make prototypes. sparkfun’s kit fit the bill, ordering on line was a snap, and the goods arrived quickly. I also bought the capacitor kit and the semiconductor kit. These comments fit all three!


A good pack to start

Resistors are well arranged and labeled.


good for me

i like it


Simple and effective

To put it simply, this kit does exactly what it says it will. It is well organized, simply set up, and made for makers.


Very Handy!

This is a great way to have organized resistors, something you always need and often can’t find the “right” one.


A Necessity For Any Project

I got one of these for Christmas and I have no complaints except for the fact that the labels on the inside are out of order and I couldn’t find half of the resistors.


Best Organization Tool for Resistors Ever!

They are organized from low to high resistance and marked AND labeled with a key. This was a great teaching tool. It was easy for me to find what I needed in a jiffy and there was more than enough for the entire class. Thank you so much!


Good complete kit of resistors

Great assortment of resistors to have kicking around.


Good, but requires more values

These resistors work well, I’d love to see a 1% kit to go along with this 5% kit. The only complaints I have are that the leads are quite thin (as other reviewers note), and there are no 68 derivatives other than 680Ω, which makes it difficult to get x10 gain (or /10) with op amps and such. I’d much rather have a 6.8kΩ vs 0Ω resistors.


Great Product!

This was exactly what we were looking for to have on hand for any future jobs.


All the resistors you'll ever need

Easy to read guide and plenty of resistors for all your needs


4

Very nice to have all those resistors all labelled and arranged. A great service you provide. Also your other stuff, and the discussions and teaching. A real plus for us noobies. Please keep up yhr good work and the great support !


Awesome resistor kit

It has all the value resistors nicely arranged and is really handy in use.


Works perfectly

Works perfectly well. No defects. Well packaged and organized. Overall awesome product


A must for any classroom on Physical Computing

Great selection and well organized. Supporting locating the right resistor without a lot of confusion. Definitely kid useable, allowing students to look at circuit layout and to quickly “kit up” their own parts.


Good value

Great value and very handy. Different resistance levels are pretty easy to find, and I like that the body of the resistors are bigger than the ones came with my Arduino kit, so they are less easy to lose sight of.


Great product

The packaging is excellent, keeping all the resistors organized with very clear labeling and resistor code diagrams. Highly recommended resistor kit.

(My only gripe is a pedantic one: the example resistor color code given uses the Latin for “that is” instead of “for example.” Not sure how the editor let that slip…)


It will fall apart

It is a good kit, nice to have for sure, but the pages kind of fall apart after a bit. Still a good buy.


Happy with this product!

Great deal!!'


Resistor kit

Good selection of resistor values and quantity.


Very Useful and really handy

I don’t know much about electronics yet, so knowing I can step up or down is really handy without having to find and buy all of these resistors individually


Every developer needs this kit!

Need a resistor.. to find just the right timing or drive level…grab the kit. Resistor stoped working because the smoke got out? grab the kit. Spark Fun need a cap kit as well.


Handy

Hard to get excited about resistors, but this is a nice selection for my work which is predominantly with small Led projects


Great variety and packing. Components quality enough for the price, not brilliant.

Pros are the way the resistors are packed, which is smart, easy for identification, handy, and the variety makes it fit all kind of projects. Cons are the ink in resistors is not no good, so it peels off a bit with use (not much) and the terminals could be thicker, they sit a bit loose in a protoboard.


Too many of what I don't need

For the project that I’m doing, I don’t need resisters over 100ohm. So there are a LOT of resistors that are going to go to waste - and that bothers me just from the aspect of “I don’t like wasting things”. The price was cheap enough that it’s not a financial issue, so I can’t really complain. It would be nice if packs of lower ohm resistors were available though.


Organized well

This is a good collection of commonly used resistors, organized so you can find the one you need quickly.


Great for beginners

This is a great kit for beginners, nicely laid out in a folder style. Quick reference chart in the back. Would probably recommend swapping the 0Ohm for something like a 180Ohm; a 0Ohm link can be achieved with a piece of wire.

Otherwise I do recommend this kit as part of a starter electronics kit.


Resistors

They resisted pretty much as advertised and were close to marked values


Brilliant Idea

This kit is great, a nice assortment of resistors organized for you in a compact binder.


Its resistors

The packaging is nice as it’s not just a spidery mess of resisters, there is some organization to it. I also haven’t had any duds so far which is also nice. I think the best thing is that you get a decent amount of resistors for very cheap. And since its assorted you should be able to get through most any project with one of these.


As necessary as a soldering iron

With local suppliers of components becoming rare, this is a required tool. Good selection and they are well labelled.


Great for even the pro, Repeat customer

Sometimes you just need a pack of resistors well organized in a nice book. This saves me tons of time breadboarding a quick circuit. Just flip to the page, pull out the resistor, and go.

I used to have a bucket full of resistors, and it took me a good 10 minutes to find the right value. Multiply that by how many pullups and PWM low pass filters in a given circuit and that is a lot of wasted time. This pack will pay for itself many times over in your time and sanity.

Now if they would only make a book of capacitors…


A Bunch of Resistors

A lot of resistors in a small box. Couldn’t resist purchasing it.


Almost perfect package

I am really happy that I bought this product. It is great that you don’t have to search in your big box of resistors and can instead just pick one out of the map. The reason that I did not give this product fve stars is that the values of the resistors are shown per list of five. It would be better if the value was also clearly shown per package of one value.


Very Nice Kit

Good selection of values. Nice long leads. Very good price. I’ll no doubt be ordering another in the near future.


Handy kit

Stays neat and makes it easy for a newbie like me to find the resistor I need. I think I’ll run out of the 220 and 330 ohm resistors pretty quickly, but then I can just buy those and always have the less often used ones around without having to buy them separately.


Very handy...

I should have added one of these to my collection sooner.


Wires too flimsy

The resistor gives a handy sampling of resistor values, but I’ve been rather bothered with the thickness of the wires coming out of each resistor. Maybe I’m wrong, but it seems like these wires are flimsier than the ones I’m used to sticking into breadboards. I have to be very careful to apply force in a direction that won’t completely bend the wires as I’m inserting the resistors into a breadboard.

I also don’t have a use for 0 ohm resistors, so I would have prefered getting a different sampling of a large resistance value.

But hey, they do their job as resistors just fine.


Resistor Kit - 1/4W (500 total) Review

Nicely organized package with most if not all resistors I commonly use.


Better than expected

I needed a few extra resistors that this kit provided that I didn’t already have laying around. The resistors are all pinned inside this kit and it shows you which ones are which value. All of my other resistors are in a binder and split out into different sections and I loved that. Ever since I got this though, I haven’t used the binder at all. Glad I ended up getting this kit.


Handy Kit

Good denominations, convenient chart for beginners (and clear colorings)


Well designed resistors with convenient organization

Every resistor I have used has worked so far. The resistors come organized in links of 25 that are stacked on top of one another on each sheet of the booklet. It’s well worth the cost and will set you up for many of your next projects. I highly recommend it


Saves time when focused on building

When i am organizing components for a circuit its great to have this kit on hand. Dont have to do a BBROYGBVGW each time.


An EXCELLENT collection of resistors for noobs like me...

This is a convenient, well packaged collection which will quickly get you stocked up for just about any small project or tinker session. The bands are easy to see and the book format of the case takes up minimal space at my workstation. Couldn’t be happier with it!
